The Youth Sunday Program is a new initiative by CUSP that aims to promote a holistic educational experience for youth aged 9-15 years old.

Annual events

Orientation

Join us at the beginning of September, welcoming new and returning student parents and their families. It's a great opportunity to meet our staff, to take a tour of our Centre and learn all what it offers and to connect and meet your fellow student parents.

If you can’t make it, or if you're starting in January, don’t worry! We are always happy to schedule a one-on-one appointment at any time that suits you.

Graduation celebration

Bring the whole family to celebrate your graduation in June. You and your children will delight in the games, henna designs, face painting and a buffet-style lunch.

Cook outs

Learn to make easy, economical and nutritious meals for you and your family. Cook outs are a monthly opportunity for you and your child(ren) to cook a healthy meal together. Bonus: bring home leftovers for those busy nights!

Fall and spring parties

We hold "family life events" at various points during the year to give you an opportunity to socialize with each other student parents and to enjoy activities with your children.

Holiday season party

Our way of celebrating the holiday season at the end of fall term! A family-friendly event with delicious food, games, activities, plus a special gift for each child.
